If you’re not one of my Twitter peeps, consider this your public service announcement for the day.
TODAY IS NOT NOVEMBER 3, 2009.
Which I discovered when I showed up today for a meeting at the boys’ school that occurred yesterday.
Which goes to show that you’re never too old to stop learning.
And in other news, Mr. CPQ hit a deer last night, which means I didn’t get any sleep because I stayed awake all night wondering if the deer was dying and if he was in any pain, and did his mama know and thinking my concern might be a sign that it was time to join PETA.
The latter thought was dismissed as I was enjoying my third piece of bacon for breakfast.
And yes, Mr. CPQ is fine because he drives a behemoth of a car and apparently Germans are all about killing Bambi without getting a dent on the bumper.
Continuing on our theme of unrelated news, I went to a restaurant supply store yesterday and spent an hour wandering the showroom because oh, the possibilities! that spring to mind when I’m in a store like that. I went in looking for some specialty baking items which they didn’t have (should have called before driving 40 minutes) but that didn’t deter me from picking up some things I didn’t need like a pretty little clear dispenser that’s supposed to be used for olive oil but I’ve filled with dish detergent and a new bread knife to handle the chewier crusts on some artisan/peasant bread I’ve been experimenting with/baking/eating.
I also bought some scoops that are supposed to help you with portion control, but I have a feeling they’re going to be perfect for portioning out giant scoops of ice cream.
Have a nice 4th day of November.
